(Minghui.org) After I started practicing Falun Dafa in 2010, not only were my husband and daughter blessed but also my parents and siblings. They all know that Falun Dafa is good. They have all quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers.
Several members of my family had to have surgery due to illness. They recited “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and were blessed with quick recoveries.
One of the doctors exclaimed, “I’ve been a doctor for decades but have never encountered such amazing things.” Now they are all in good health. It is really true what Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, said: “with one person practicing, the whole family benefits...” (Teachings at the Conference in Australia)
On behalf of my family, I thank Master from the bottom of my heart for his compassionate protection and salvation, which has helped my family escape from danger and illness.
I was born in the countryside to kind and honest parents who farmed to support us. I was the eldest child and went to work on the farm after junior high school. In 2008, I was fortunate enough to get work as a janitor for a company with over 1,000 employees.
In the administrative office where I worked, there was an office manager, Mei, who practiced Falun Dafa. She was known to be a good person and won awards each year as an advanced worker. Mei was friendly, selfless, and helpful. She often talked to me. I trusted her and often sought her advice on personal problems. She always encouraged me, “You should practice Falun Dafa. It will help you to be more tolerant and forbearing, you will be cheerful, and you will have good health.”
I asked her to teach me the exercise movements. During lunch breaks, I learned all five. When doing the sitting meditation, I could only sit in the half lotus position—the full lotus position seemed impossible. As I studied Master’s book Zhuan Falun more, my endurance increased and I was able to sit in the full lotus position.
Before practicing Dafa, I had a lump in my breast that grew bigger and more painful each year. The doctor said that breast lumps tend to worsen with time. After practicing Dafa, my xinxing improved, and the breast lump became smaller. It stopped hurting and eventually disappeared. The company where I worked arranged annual medical checkups for us, and all my results were good.
Since I was always sincere, kind, tolerant, and conscientious, the company promoted me to lead the janitorial team that specialized in cleaning the managers’ offices and meeting rooms.
I often think of Master’s teaching about “altruism” (“Non-Omission in Buddha-Nature,” Essentials for Further Advancement) and think of others first. If other janitors were busy, I would help them clean the bathroom and so on.
In Zhuan Falun, Master spoke about “cultivating speech.” I realized that I could not pass on anything I overheard the company managers say. As time went on, I earned the trust of almost every senior manager.
When I reached retirement age and was ready to retire, the managers unanimously asked me to stay. The director said, “We won’t let you leave! Where would we find anyone as good as you? After you complete your retirement procedures, we will rehire you at the same salary.”
This is something that so many employees envy, because I would get not only a full salary but also my retirement pension. Many applied to be rehired but weren’t.
The fact that I can get a double salary is really a great thing for my family, since we are not well-off. I know that this is a blessing from my practicing Falun Dafa. Master told us to be a good person no matter where we are. Because I follow Dafa’s teachings, the company managers saw my kindness and let me continue to work.
Before practicing Dafa, when my husband scolded me unreasonably, I always fought with him. Sometimes we even hit each other. Naturally, I couldn't win, and that made me so angry that I suffered mentally as well as physically. After cultivating Dafa, when I felt he didn’t treat me fairly, I tried to control my temper and do as Master said.
At first it was difficult, but I was able to make progress little by little. If I didn’t do well this time, I told myself I’d do better next time. Sometimes when I couldn’t do it, Master would give me a hint by having my husband say things like, “Aren’t you cultivating Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance? Why are you still arguing with me?” I knew I was wrong, and I told myself to do well the next time.
Now I can basically remain calm and take good care of my husband no matter how he treats me. My relationship with my in-laws also improved.
When I first started to practice Falun Dafa, my husband was quite surprised. Fortunately, he did not do anything to stop me. As time went on, he saw the changes in me and he benefited from them, so he began to support me in the practice. After learning how awful the CCP really is, he also agreed to quit the Young Pioneers.
In 2015, my husband found blood in his urine, so he went to the township hospital. The doctor said that it was bladder cancer and recommended surgery at a bigger hospital. I went with him to the city hospital. The doctor confirmed that it was bladder cancer and recommended surgery as soon as possible.
We went home and got ready for him to be in the hospital. My husband was nervous and scared, saying, “It is going to cost a lot for the surgery and follow-up treatments. We are not well-off, and our children have not yet married. How will we pay for it? I know cancer is incurable, and I’m going to die. What should I do? If I die, how would you live on your own?” He cried and hugged me for a long time.
I said, “Let’s ask Master for help. Only Master can save you. Let’s sincerely and respectfully repeat, ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ together.”
We recited the phrases all night and did not sleep. On the way to the hospital the next day, we continued. At the hospital, my husband went to the examination room. I kept saying the phrases as I waited outside, asking Master to save him. Then, a miracle—the cancer cells had disappeared!
The doctor thought it was amazing. How could the cancer cells be gone overnight? My husband was so excited that he kept thanking Master. I was so moved that I cried and put my hands together to thank Master!
After this near-death experience, my husband quit many bad habits and became a much better person in all respects. He also found a good, steady job.
After I practiced Falun Dafa, my sister witnessed all the ways I changed for the better. She knew that my mood was better, my breast lumps disappeared, and my husband’s bladder cancer was cured. But when I asked her to practice Dafa, she was a little afraid because she had seen defamatory propaganda about Falun Dafa in the media put out by the Chinese communist regime.
In 2019, my sister had vaginal bleeding and pain. The doctor said that there was a growing polyp that would require surgical removal. I advised my sister to sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” at the time, but she was not convinced.
A few months later, my sister had vaginal bleeding and pain again. The doctor said that the polyp they’d removed was back and growing, so she was told to have another surgery the next day. I encouraged her again, “You know how much I benefited from practicing Falun Dafa and how much I have changed. You should first withdraw from the CCP’s Youth League and the Young Pioneers and then sincerely and respectfully recite, ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’” This time, my sister listened. She withdrew from the CCP organizations and began to repeat the phrases.
The next morning, my sister called to tell me that she suddenly had an unexpected, heavy period outside of her regular cycle. Her surgery had already been scheduled, so she went to the hospital on time. During the operation, the doctor was surprised to discover that the polyp was gone! The place where the polyp was supposed to be was smooth and normal. The doctor said to my sister, “If it had been surgically removed, there would scars. But this is incredible! I have never encountered such a miracle in all my decades of medical practice. Amazing!”
After I practiced Falun Dafa, my mood, my body, and my family life improved, all of which I shared with my mother. I also told her about my colleague Mei and how good and kind she was, so my mother had a good understanding of Falun Dafa. She became more convinced when she heard about what happened with my husband and my sister. Due to my encouragement, she also quit the Young Pioneers.
In the first half of 2020, my mother had back pain for several days. She didn’t want to spend a fortune on treatment, and the pain only got worse. When she couldn’t stand it anymore, she asked my brother to accompany her to the hospital. The doctor who examined her said it was a kidney stone and she needed surgery.
She was hospitalized immediately and paid a deposit of 3,000 yuan. The total cost for the operation was estimated to be 30,000 yuan.
Before they would operate, the doctor put my mother on antihypertensive medicine for a week to bring her blood pressure down. Because the hospital was full, the doctor agreed that my mother could stay at home for that week.
Kidney stone pain is excruciating. My mother remembered how well my husband and sister did after repeating the auspicious phrases, so she thought, “I believe Falun Dafa is good, so I will say them sincerely, too.” She recited the phrases at home whenever she could, sometimes out loud. Slowly, the pain subsided and she recovered without having the operation.
My father is in good health and works on the family farm. He can still carry large bags of rice and wheat on his shoulders even though he is in his 70s. My parents also grow vegetables and raise chickens. One time, a large gust of wind toppled much of the neighbor’s rice crop, but my parents’ crop wasn’t affected and still had a very high yield. My parents knew that this was a blessing from Dafa. They said, “We also want to be kind people who are considerate of others!”
The intersection of the path from the main road into the village was uneven and muddy. Especially when it rained, the mud would splash the pedestrians when cars drove by.
My parents, who are both in their 70s, saw this and were determined to fix the place so that they could get in and out easily. They went to work with a shovel and other tools. Because the soil was mostly clay that cars had driven on and people had walked on, the ground was firmly compacted, so it took a lot of effort to just to drive the shovel into the ground. Both of them worked very hard and were sweating profusely. It took them and entire afternoon to get it leveled out.
While most of the villagers who passed by gave them a big thumb-up, there were some who didn’t understand and said some unpleasant things. My parents were not upset and thought to themselves, “We just want to be kind people and do good deeds.”
